Some Nice Things

Online Finds


Some great online (and instore) finds for the home... I actually already have the throw rug, but I got mine at Costco for an amazing $9.  I posted a picture of it to Instagram (below) and it had a couple of fans, but not everyone has a Costco close by (yet).  Then I came across the same rug on OO this week - not quite as cheap as Costco, but still a reasonable price for a great rug (it comes in other colours/designs too).  Of course if you do have a Costco nearby, I'd suggest visiting there first!

The 6 function cake stand - anyone got one?  You can use it as a cake stand, chip and dip server (covered or uncovered), salad bowl or punch bowl - sounds good for $16 and would solve that problem of never having a cover for a serving stand or plate.  As for the striped basket...NEED.


*Looks like the fabric storage cube is no longer available (that was quick!).  Shame, only $12.

  1. I've been wanting the Maffens basket for ages since a friend (who knows my taste well) pointed me to it! I can never find it in IKEA though.

    1. Annoying! I haven't seen the basket in store, but online it says it is available (at my local store anyway). I have noticed that some items aren't stocked in all stores though, think it depends on the size of the store :(

    1. For $16 I think it might be a worthwhile investment!

  4. I am so close to Costco but don't have a membership. Probably good for my wallet that I don't.

  5. I've heard a whisper Cosco is comming to the Central Coast...I hope so! That cake stand thingy is so clever! I bought the faceted candles in white but I love the gold and black....sometimes waiting is better than jumping in too eagerly!

    1. I've heard Costco are opening a number of stores around the country so fingers crossed you get one in your neck of the woods, it's kinda fun to visit!
